Hi.

I have a small question again.:)

I have developed a few nodes, but one of the last ones makes me crazy. I developed the first Initator, so without a return value to an outport.

A calculator-node has a method called Calculate(...) which is called when a the frame changed or a calculation has been requested.

But how in initiators? I tried to search in the SDK Documentation, but there is only the reference to the CalculationTable. Is this the right way I have to look for? Hoped that there is a method instead of Calculation(...) which is requested (even when no outport is connected / avaible)

Thanks a lot 🙂

Hi!

Thanks.. Well, I have a node, which executes some commands, but they will not be executed in the Calculate(...) method when no outport is connected. But my node has no output ports.. 😞

HI!

Wanted to ask If somebody knows some info.

When I use a calculation-node and puts another node to the output-port the function/method "calculate" is called and I can calculate the part I want.

But which function/method is called when my node has no outport?

Thanks 🙂
